Unless you want to refinish on a regular basis don’t try any of the clear varnish type finishes. They just won’t stand up to the suns rays. If you really want a clear finish use one of the natural color deck finishes. They are easy to apply so when you need to renew its not a big chore and they look nice on the cypress.
On a side note. Cypress was once called the “eternal wood” because of its rot resistance but there’s not much wood of that quality around anymore. The only wood of that quality left is sinker cypress that is pulled from the bottom of rivers and bayous and you will pay dearly for it but it is beautiful.
